Lake Walter F. George occupies an impressive 85 miles of the Chattahoochee River, separating Alabama and Georgia with 48,000 acres of fresh water perfect for boating, fishing, skiing and swimming.
Also, with 640 miles of shoreline, 13 Corps of Engineers day use parks and four adjoining campgrounds, the Lake is an ideal place for camping, outdoor and water-related activities.
Fishing in particular draws visitors to the area. Lake George's gamefish include largemouth bass, white bass, crappie, channel catfish and bream.
Alabama and Georgia have worked together to make fishing as easy and competitive as possible by reciprocal acceptance of state-issued fishing licenses, and the ongoing programs to create and maintain fish "attractors" which improve the quality and quantity of fish.
Bank fishing is also great at several locations, including public fishing decks, at the mouth of tributary creeks and along several bridges.
